Lloyd & Audrey – words can’t express my sympathies for you. Our children were the same age and I can’t imagine the loss you are feeling. Prayers for your healing….
What a treasure. Travis is best known for his sense of humor, his sarcastic wit, and his penchant for trying to applyi logic to everything! I count myself blessed to have been a small part of his work life. Prayers of grace and peace for his loved ones.
I love this photo because Travis is smiling as we loved to see him do. He did have a great sense of humor and you never knew what he might say! I count it a privilege to consider him a friend and pray comfort for all who miss him so.
It was a pleasure to have sat next to you for all those years! We had sum hilarious moments at work! You were a Great friend. Apostle Paul says “to be absent from the body is to be present with GOD!” My Prayers are with you Jennifer, Justin and Cameron! Travis will be missed!
Our deepest sympathies to the Conklins. I have fond memories of Travis
while growing up in Clint. As I read the other condolences, it makes me think back and remember the fun times and laughs we shared. Lots of fun.
Lots of memories.
Dear Jen, Cameron, and Justin. So, so sorry to hear about Travis.
I know his passing will leave a huge hole in your lives. Trust
God to fill that hole as only He can. Bill and Marilyn
For the Conklin Family, I am so very sorry for your loss. I worked with Travis and Jennifer almost 20 years ago at Bennigans where they fell in love, I am so very happy they had each other and they had 2 beautiful boys. He was a great man, I only wish we had stayed in touch. So young. so sad.
To Audrey and all the Conklin family,
so very sorry for your loss, my deepest sympathy.
I’ve known Travis for the last 20 years. My daughter and my son just happened to work at the same place as Travis. Jeff and Travis became the best of friends. In fact, Jeff was Travis’s best man at his wedding and they have remained close to this day. It helped to stay close because soon they became brothers when Travis married Jennifer, Jeff’s sister. Travis was like my own son throughout these years. My husband and All of My kids, including Travis are the loves of my life.
I am heartbroken and will think of Travis, often. I will always remember the many, many memories we all have shared throughout the years. I will miss him for the rest of my lifetime and look forward to the day we can all be together in Heaven to spend eternity with God. Rest in sweet peace, my sweet son and friend. You know I love you and I know you love me. I will always be here for your family until the day God calls me home. Oh, what a day that will be.
I knew Travis in high school and had reconnected many years ago. My memories of him are filled with laughter and happy times.Back in high school, he taught me to have the courage to be myself. He loved his family so much. I send thoughts of light and love to them.
